1. If the batteries are dead then there's no way that you can charge them again. You're better off purchasing a new one. You can purchase one online by visiting the ToshibaDirect website or by calling them on 1-800-316-09202.

2. Yes, you can use the power cords to run the computer. Just plug them in using the power cords even with the batteries removed and it should work fine.

3. Yes you can but you might experience some current fluctuations. This is negligible on a CMOS battery though.

IPad 2 not taking a battery charge


Three possibilities:
1. Worn out battery (rechargeable batteries have limited life span, then need to be replaced)
2. Bad charger
3. Bad cord
All three of these can be purchased and replaced.

My tablet wont charge unless turned on but battery is so low it wont turn on so cant charge it up.heeeeeelllllpppp


You Power Cord must be bad. If you cannot get on the laptop by using just the power cord, then the power cord is bad and needs to be replaced. Also it sounds like you've been operating off your battery since the power cord is bad, but now the battery is dead because the bad power cord was not charging it.

Get a new AC Adapter and Power Cord. Or it could be that the pin where you plug the power cord into the table is damaged or broken.

Nextbook2 will not turn on with a full battery


1) Try to plug the AC power adapter and see if the Nextbook2 turns on - if it does, there is 99% chance that the battery is dead. You can get the replacement battery only from the Nextbook manufacturer/dealer, nobody else sells separate batteries yet, not even on eBay.
2) If the Nexbook2 DOESN'T turn on even with the AC power adapter plugged in - see whether it (1) starts to load the system or (2) merely makes a sound, but nothing appears on the screen, or (3) maybe it doesn't even make a sound. In the (1) case you could reinstall the system, but it's not that easy without a built-in CD-ROM, so I recommend to bring it to the mechanic/dealer/manufacturer. There is no better solution possible.

My toshiba r10 laptop wont turn on the green power light to the front is on but the yellow battery light only comes onn when i plug in the power cord to it and it only stays about 2 seconds


Ok here's what you will do

1) Unplug the notebook from the ac adapter (charger power cord)

2) Take off the battery pack on the notebook

3) Once the ac adapter and battery is off the notebook, hold down the power button for 15 seconds

4) After 15 seconds, let go of the power button

5) Now plug in the AC ADAPTER (OR CHARGER POWER CORD) ONLY (DO NOT PUT BACK THE BATTERY PACK)

6) Now press the power button once.

7) If the unit boots, the unit suffered a slight surge

8) If the unit does not boot and remains dead, the unit suffered a severe surge and may be burned out and needs replacing

I hope this helps and let me know how it goes afterwards

THE TABLET BATTERY DRAINED DEAD NOW IT WONT POWER UP WITH THE CORD OR BATTERY DEAD. IS IT THE BATTERY OR CORD THE PROBLEM. MY OTHER LAPTPS WILL STILL POWER UP IF THE BAT IS DEAD, IS THIS NOT TRUE FOR THE...


Have the power adaptor checked by an electrician, most probably you will need a replacement.

If you establish that the adaptor is working, then something happened to the battery charging circuitry in your Asus and it will need repair.

If it's still under warranty, then you are good, otherwise it would be better if the adaptor alone failed, as replacement adaptors are rather inexpensive compared to laptop repairs.

Gateway M1300 tablet pc will not charge in the


Question 1: Will the tablet operate on the docking station (or power cord) without the battery in place?

If not, the power circuit on the tablet motherboard is broken.

Question 2: If you plug in the power cord into the tablet, is the connection "loose"?
Check the other tablet to see if it is the same loosness at the tablet power connector.

If it is loose, the power receptical in the tablet can be soldered back onto the motherboard.

Recommend taking it into a shop to re-solder.
If under warranty, get it repaired.
If not under warranty, your choice if you want to use it they way it is.

Hope this helps...

My Battery is not working!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Discharging the battery will not harm the battery. Lenovo purposely has an annoyingly slow recharge rate because a quick recharge will shorten the life of the battery. It is not a problem if you have the patience to allow a long recharge. Otherwise spring for a second battery for quick replacement when AC power is not accessible.
